*Review of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. This material is subjective, it is not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to purchase. Before you buy, it is necessary to consult with a specialist.
The purchase of a safe may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Such an item can come in handy in a hotel. It is also not uncommon to buy it for use in a private home. In short, you should not be surprised by the huge variety of safes sold in numerous online stores. Let us become acquainted with the best models among those that are available in the Russian retail.
Recommendations for choosing a safe
The main purpose of the safe is to keep the contents from intruders. But what exactly will be in it? And where will the safe be located?? The choice of a safe depends on the answers to these questions. For example, in the U.S. and many other countries are widespread weapons models. They are distinguished by their large size and the presence of special compartments in which all sorts of guns are placed in a hanging position (and also in them you can find room for many cartridges and a certain number of guns). The ordinary floor safes are a little bit cheaper. Theoretically, they can also store weapons, but more often they are used for other things.
The most popular in our country are compact safes. These are the ones installed in hotel rooms. They, as well as all other safes, may have at their disposal a different type of lock. The most popular are mechanical key, mechanical code and electronic code. Each lock has not only its advantages, but also disadvantages. For example, the key can be lost and the code can be forgotten. Fortunately, both can be restored by contacting the manufacturer of the safe. More and more often now there are safes with biometric locks, on the door of which there are not only buttons with digits but also a fingerprint scanner.
When choosing a particular model you may want to pay attention toEach safe corresponds to this or that burglary resistance class. It shows how difficult it is to break into the product by an intruder. If you want to keep money in the safe, you should necessarily be guided by this parameter. The highest class is the fifth – it allows you to safely put inside many millions of rubles.
Now you understand that choosing a safe is not as difficult as it may seem. Finally we should mention that there are fireproof models. They are usually used for things that you would like to keep even in case of fire. In other cases a burglary-proof safe is still purchased.

Top Gun Safes
VALBERG Zaslon EL
This 76-kilogram safe can easily be used to store several guns and ammunition. They are not expected to be of any great value and so the product only belongs to burglary resistance class S1. This means that an intruder might still gain access to the inside, especially if he uses a “grinder” or some other similar tool.
Like many other gun safes, this one is placed on the floor. The box door here is reinforced with a 5mm thick face panel. On the front there is a high-security electronic lock. Happy that it has non-volatile memory. If the battery is flat, nothing bad can happen – just use the external contacts. The three locking mechanisms of the safe are secured with a latchbolt.
- The bottom has a soft coating;
- Roller clamping trays for shotguns are available;
- Three sided bolt mechanism is used;
- Reliable electronic lock;
- Not too heavy.
- Not the highest burglary resistance class;
- High cost.
This safe may seem too narrow for some. Really, this model is designed for those who want to keep only one or two guns inside. It can hold a knife and maybe a pistol in addition. But such a safe will not take much space in the room! And saving on the amount of steel allowed the manufacturer to reduce the price tag to a quite acceptable value!
There is a rug on the bottom of this safe. No special finish of the inner walls is noticed here. The usual roller trays are used to fasten the firearms. If we talk about the body and door, they are only 2 mm thick. In this regard, it is not surprising that this model corresponds to a modest burglary resistance class S1. Two locks of the Ryazan company Border are used here. However the manufacturer does not exclude the possibility of installing other locks if the customer wishes.

- There is a compartment for cartridges;
- Convenient gun mounts;
- Does not take up much space;
- Weighs only 39kg.
- Not a very big capacity;

Aiko Chirok 1520
One of the most popular gun safes, sold in many Russian online stores. Customers must like it because of its low price. However, this model also has a distinguishing feature that not every competitor can boast. The thing is that here are used two doors. Behind the first one there will be a gun. And a smaller door on top of the safe. In this compartment to store cartridges. The first door locks with two key locks and the second door locks with one key lock.
This model can not boast any high burglary resistance class. This is due to the fact that the thickness of the door and walls is only 1.5 mm. However, the safe will definitely not give other family members access to the weapons. Interestingly, on the back of this model there are anchor holes. They allow you to attach the safe to the wall.
Note that the inside of this model is completely empty. The manufacturer did not equip his creation with a mat, as he did not think about the trays. Would have to spend extra money for all this.

- Behind a separate door hides an ammo compartment;
- It has anchor holes;
- Small size and weight.
- Low burglary resistance class;
- There are no trays in the set;
- Accommodates not a very large number of barrels.
One of the most elaborate weapon safes for a comparatively low price. If you open the door, you will see several compartments inside. The largest of them is designed to store one or two guns. Smaller compartments to the left. You can put here your ammunition, firearms papers and a lot more. The compartment for cartridges is locked with a separate lock! It is impossible not to mention the availability of removable shelves inside the tray.
As this safe is intended exclusively for storage of firearms, there is no need to complain about the thickness of its walls, which is only 1.5 mm. Naturally, with such parameters this model could not get any high burglary resistance rating. Instead, it is better to rejoice in the presence of anchor holes, thanks to which it is relatively easy to fasten the safe to the wall. As for the locking mechanism, it uses two key locks. As all other models in our selection, this safe corresponds to the Firearms Regulations of the Ministry of Interior.

ONIX MINI 130
This must be the cheapest weapon safe among those sold in Russian online stores. Can be purchased for only 6-7 thousand. rubles. If you expect to get a burglary-proof product for this price, we are going to disappoint you. Basically, such a safe serves to prevent children and other members of the family from getting access to the weapon. An intruder, if he has time, will be able to open this product with an “angle grinder” or some other tools. Especially if you don’t attach the safe to the floor and wall beforehand – it is possible to do so here.
No inside trays inside this model. Economy forced the manufacturer to abandon the banal mat. Since the safe is quite narrow, there is only room for two barrels inside. Is nice that in the upper part is a separate compartment, also lockable door. Cartridges should be stored here. The only thing that embarrasses is the very modest size of this safe.
Otherwise, this is the usual inexpensive safe, the walls and door of which are 1.5 millimeters thick. No problem with the delivery of the product, since its weight does not exceed 14.4 kg.

An excellent choice for someone who does not want to spoil the interior with a safe. This model stands out from the competition with its wooden finish. The color of the finish can be different – it depends on the choice of the buyer. It is interesting that the natural wood has not affected the fire resistance – in this respect, the product is ready to boast of class 90B. The manufacturer has achieved this through the use of double steel walls. Concrete is poured between the sheets of steel. If you open the door, you will see that the interior is covered with velvet.
This model corresponds to the second class of burglary resistance. And this despite the fact that the manufacturer has used steel more than 30 mm thick! It is difficult to fault the strong locking latch system, which is controlled by a code lock. The diameter of the bolts is 25 mm. The lock itself is protected by a carbide plate. The customer should be pleased with the possibility of anchoring the safe to the floor.

Excellent option for those cases when it is necessary to keep cash in the safe in the amount of many millions rubles. The fifth burglary protection class makes it possible not to worry about the contents of this model. Against this background it is not surprising that the product has received approval from the Association of Russian safes manufacturers, and has been awarded the appropriate certificate according to GOST. If we talk about the body, it uses 55 mm side walls. The door has an overall thickness of 100 mm! And it involves not only steel, but also the reinforcement of concrete. In short, it is extremely difficult to saw this material, even with special construction tools.
As for the locking system, it is a three-pointed latchbolt. The mechanism is protected by tempered glass and the lock can neither be picked nor drilled. If an intruder starts to pick the lock, the latch mechanism will simply be blocked.

MDTB EK 28 E
An optimal choice for a hotelier who has suites. Yes, this model can not boast a high class of burglary resistance. But it has a nice appearance. And a combination lock is more convenient for the guest than a key lock.
Despite its modest size, this model was created from quite thick metal. That’s why it weighs 54 kg. But you have to put up with a 18-liter internal volume. However, there is nothing wrong with it. Much more important is the fact that the safe fits into any cupboard. And what kind of a hotel guest would fill it up to the brim?? It will hold the most important things, and that is the most important thing. It’s noteworthy that the producer equipped his creation with a shelf, which seems superfluous with such an insignificant amount of interior space.
We have already said above that the safe has a low burglary resistance class. However, this does not mean that it can be opened with simple tools. Here the bolts and the lock are protected against hammering and burglary, so it will take a lot of time to open it. There is also a locking system of bolt mechanism in case of attempt to dislodge the lock.

VALBERG GRANIT III-50
The name of this model hints at its main advantage over competitors. This safe corresponds to the third class of burglary resistance. With such a modest size, it can not help but surprise! But at the same time it affected the weight of the product. Installation of a 182-kilogram safe is extremely difficult. That is why this model is very rare to see in hotels and other similar institutions. It is usually used for storing cash which exceeds a million rubles.
The dimensions of this model is 500x510x510 mm. To give you an idea, the internal dimensions are a good hundred millimeters less! Now you understand how thick the steel was used in the manufacture of this safe! And yet the product can not be called small. The corresponding measurements show that the internal volume reaches 51 liters. It is quite enough to put a lot of important documents or a very decent amount of money. And the manufacturer also offers the use of a tray, but you have to buy it separately. The safe is delivered with a single shelf by default.

VALBERG KARAT 25
This is a miniature safe, with not a single extra element on the door – only the key hole is found here. But immediately becomes clear and the main drawback of the product. Only one key is used to open. Can you call it a convenient solution? If the safe will be placed in a hotel room, we would like to see the combination lock. All disadvantages are compensated by the low price. Now this is one of the most inexpensive models among those that correspond to the first class of anti-burglary resistance according to GOST. The safe has also undergone an independent voluntary certification in accordance with RSB-C, which resulted in it being rated S2.
Despite its apparent simplicity, the VALBERG KARAT 25 has a three-way latch system. It also has a burglar-proof lock. And not only the safe itself but also the bolts. Thickness of front panel is 10 mm, which is quite big for such dimensions of safe. And the side and rear walls are 14 mm thicker, which can not help but please.
It is impossible not to note the compactness of this product. That means it should fit in any cabinet. You will not have any problems with its delivery and installation. The thing is that the weight of the safe is only 44 kg. To make the life of an intruder more difficult it is recommended to fix the product to the floor.
- The modest weight;
- There is a removable shelf;
- Anchoring to the floor is possible;
- Reliable key lock;
- A three-way latch system is implemented;
- There is a protection against drilling and knocking out.
- Internal volume is only 14 liters;
- The use of a key will not suit everyone;
- Not a very high burglary resistance class;
- The front panel is not very thick.
Klesto RS bio-30
A very handsome safe that has modest dimensions. Its 300mm height should allow the product to fit in most cabinets. It can even withstand many shelves, because the weight of this model does not exceed 20 kg. However, this makes it clear right away that the burglary resistance of this product is very low. You can unlock the safe with almost any tool available. This is why it is not recommended to keep large amounts of money in the Klesto RS bio-30.
The electronic lock is the most distinctive feature of this model. The fact that it uses not only code technology, but also biometric. Good news for those who are already used to unlock their smartphone by scanning their fingerprint – the same method is implemented here. Since it requires power, the lock must be powered from a battery. If it runs out of power, the safe can be opened with the emergency key.
Otherwise, this is the usual inexpensive model, whose dimensions are 300x360x435 mm. It comes with not only the aforementioned emergency key, but also a removable shelf. It is also possible to attach it to the floor or wall by means of an anchor.
- Fingerprint scanning opening is available;
- It can be attached to the wall or floor;
- Low weight;
- There is a removable shelf;
- Cute appearance;
- Can be opened with an emergency key.
- No burglary resistance class;
- Modest interior volume;
- There is no special drill protection;
- The cost will not suit everyone.
This safe cannot be called small at all. Its dimensions are 685x540x490 mm. This allows you to put quite a lot of valuable documents inside. The safe is also ideal for storing large sums of money. This is evidenced by the fact that the product corresponds to the second class of burglary resistance (according to the Russian State Standard). Part of the credit for this must be given to the use of a German lock by CAWI. As you may guess, it is protected against being knocked out or drilled out. This alone proves that in order to crack the safe you will need both time and special power tools.
As many other models in our selection, this one has a three-sided latch system. To open the door, you first turn the key, and then turn the handle. An interesting feature is the possibility of opening the door 180 degrees. The purchaser should be pleased with the thickness of all walls, which is quite serious. Bottom has an 11mm hole that allows you to anchor the safe to the floor. As for the drawbacks, the only disappointing thing is the difficulty with installation – you’ll have to drag 145-kilogram monster.
- Very high burglary resistance class;
- Floor anchoring is available;
- Reliable key lock;
- A decent internal volume;
- Large degree of door opening;
- Good protection against drilling.
- Some people will want a combination lock;
- The safe is very heavy;
- Only one removable shelf;
- The price will not suit everyone.
One of the simplest safes. Usually it is placed or in inexpensive hotel rooms, or in apartments intended for renting. You should not expect from this model any burglary resistance class. This is clear after taking a look at the door, which is made only from 1.2mm thick steel. The side panels are similar here. The one-sided latch and bolt system does the trick. In short, in theory, you can break into such a safe with a nail gun or a crowbar. That is why it is recommended to store documents or something similar, but definitely not a large sum of money.
For locking the usual key lock is used here. The interesting thing is that inside the safe there is a cartridge compartment with its own lock, popularly called a “trayzer”. It is because of its presence that this model is considered a gun safe. But keep in mind its size. No way to fit a gun in here. This safe is designed to store nothing more than pistols. However, no one forces to use it only for such purposes. The main advantage of this safe is, of course, the low price. Saving on materials allowed the producer to reach adequate cost price. We must admit that also in our selection of the safe got only because of the price tag, because in everything else it is strongly inferior to its competitors.
- Very low cost;
- There is a separately lockable tray;
- Good quality workmanship and painting;
- Available fixing to the floor;
- Modest size and weight.
- A combination lock would have been more convenient;
- Relatively easy to break in;
- Not a very large interior volume.
